What a beautiful Family!

This family is absolutely gorgeous and I loved getting to meet them at their home ... always makes it so special to get to photograph somewhere you really love to be!  They could not have been nicer - and the light and that street - it was magic!:)

I love this one!:)

No family is complete without the trusty guard dog!:)  This dog was great and had so much personality - kept us laughing the whole time!

Home Sweet Home

What a wonderful family!  They are getting ready to move out of this home and around the corner, so we took a moment to capture both their family and the wonderful time they have spent raising their family in this home  -- what a great gift that they'll have a story of the moments they spent here!  (love that this was actually a gift from their real estate agent extraordinaire, Carrie Foote )

love this stolen moment - these are the times we spend in our homes that make it home!  ... and this is a very loved kitty!!:)

Ol' Blue Eyes ..... You've got competition!

It took us a while to get this together and get Mr.P in front of the camera.... but totally worth the wait!!  He was such a dream and has the nicest parents ever!  He surprised them by coming early - what a great surprise! He was a total doll!:)!

Oh yeah!  His smile says it all...... what a wonderful shoot and totally left him tuckered out!!

Prerequisite: You Must be Beautiful to be in this family!

Truly love getting to photograph big family sessions -- I always say there is something magic about siblings and cousins being together and all the silliness that starts happening -- it makes for the most magically captured moments!!  This was even more special,  because I've had the pleasure of getting to know and photograph each one of these siblings and their respective family unit -- and they are truly beautiful from the inside out!  Thanks, guys!  I loved getting to see you all!

love this unexpected captured moment

Girlie Girl and her Fam!

Loved seeing this girlie girl and her sweet family!  She's all smiles and sweetness -- and I would venture to guess she'll be wearing cowboy boots and riding a horse soon after she starts walking!! I met her family years ago when both my daughter and this little girl's uncle were riding at a stable out in the Redlands -- can't believe it's been so long since those days!


A beautiful group of girls!

Love this beautiful family and always great to see them!  It was a true treat to get to see 4 generations of beautiful girls!

Oh!!  how much fun I always have with these two muffins!  They are the sweetest and love getting to play!

Cake Time!

Happy Happy Birthday to this sweet little girl!!  She and her sister are the cutest ever -- and I love that she was actually willing to share with her big sis'  (see the image below -- she just let her dip into and snack along with her without even blinking an eye!! ) You could just drown in these big brown eyes of hers!!  

Giggle Fest!!

Totally love these two -- they are total giggle monsters and they didn't let me down at this shoot!!  I couldn't believe how much they had grown up over the last year.  And my hat is off to Mom - she called me uber prepared and ready to get her holiday card shoot done super early - THANK YOU, V!!!  I know it was hot as could be and we were almost melting by the end of our session -- but organization and withstanding the heat should have some kind of reward, so look for an SMP print credit gift card in the mail to thank you for both!!  xo

LOVE LOVE LOVE this photo!!  It screams HAPPY, FUN FAMILY on board!:)

Snug as a Bug!

This little guy could not have been more comfy in this sling!  He complained a little when we took him out, but he settled right down and was an absolute angel to photograph!  He's just a sweetheart - and I LOVE his name!  Welcome to the world, J!

Love love this photo -- such a sweetness between these two!
